Nigeria’s 30-man provisional squad for Brazil
The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, on Tuesday
announced Nigeria’s provisional 30-man list for
the FIFA 2014 World Cup.
The list, submitted by Super Eagles coach,
Stephen Keshi, was read on Tuesday evening by
a member of the Technical Committee of the NFF,
Paul Bassey.
Some the players who made the list include
Mikel Obi, Victor Moses, Vincent Enyeama,
Sunday Mba, and Ahmed Musa; all of whom
were in the Nigerian side that won the 2013
African Cup of Nations.

fallen out with Keshi also made the list. These
include Osaze Odemwingie and Joseph Yobo.

for the Brazil 2014 World Cup.

    Let’s hope the final list consists of brothers who’ll gladly were the shirt with pride and give everything. With hardwork, we can go as far as the QF.
